From Uncommon Beat (5/30/2013):
We wanted to share with you the hardcover case we developed as a compliment to the Black Book of Cards deck. We took the concept of a hardbound book to create an actual case that can be used to protect the deck in your pocket or used to store and display your deck collection creating a sleek library look and feel. Take a look at the Portofino Hardcover Deck Case that we will be making available during the Black Book of Cards Kickstarter (Coming Soon).
The Portofino Hardcover is a case and not a card clip. Each hardcover case is handmade with quality materials from the inside book board to the outer cover. The Portofino case is covered in a soft and supple high end material that simulates a quality leather look and feel yet is exceptionally strong by being oil, water, and scuff resistant lending itself to be a superior material for the outer hardcover case. When we were experimenting with different types of closures, the long vertical elastic strap turned out to be the most effective option for securing the deck inside of the hardcover. Probably why you see this type of closure on many notebooks and portfolio covers on the market. Now it's available as a hardcover case for your decks as well! We are in the process of experimenting with the inside material and we are currently looking at a soft suede like material that you can see in the photos (Below).
